Guillermo Bueron

Guillermo Bueron is a lead Spanish instructor and a 20-year veteran of teaching the Spanish language. He is a certified Berlitz and Cambridge instructor; he teaches the Berlitz method in a casual setting. Berlitz is a conversational style of teaching which focuses on the learner developing spoken communication with others; even complete beginners can speak simple sentences in the first few lessons.

Spanish lessons can be arranged separately from the retreat package if guests are only interested in them. In addition to Guillermo Bueron, Baja Beach Retreats also works with other certified local instructors.

Villas de Cerritos Beach is located in the town of Pescadero with some of the richest farm land around, peppered with unique businesses. It is full of amazing art galleries, delicious restaurants, unique boutiques, and endless charming streets to stroll.

This is not Cabo! This is a rustic, laid back community and if you embrace a casual lifestyle, you will never want to leave. Todos Santos, Cerritos, and Pescadero are bohemian, historical, spiritual, and full of life. Most people who visit explore purchasing property here because it really is that special.

    "Baja Beach Retreats is a perfect mix of activities to stimulate the mind and body. The yoga facility offers a breath-taking view of the Pacific with migrating whales passing by. The peaceful Cerritos beach community has comfortable and fully-equipped accommodations, and a lovely patio and pool area. We enjoyed plenty of relaxing beach time and excellent surf, plus a great variety of activities when we felt like leaving the shore. Our Spanish instructor made it fun to learn and practice the language. If you are looking to experience the best of Baja, you can’t go wrong with Baja Beach Retreats."

    "It started with a cold Corona in the airport parking lot and just got better from there. Jenn greeted us with a smile and a hug and driving the scenic roads to Cerritos Beach. If you are looking to be a traveler and want an authentic experience that challenges and inspires you daily, Cerritos and Baja Spanish School is the right place to be. Guillermo (our Jedi of a Spanish teacher) is the kindest, most accommodating, most interesting person I know in Baja! He geared the classes to our ability and so that we could survive on the outings we took to Todos Santos and La Paz (and all the stops in between). The surfing and yoga instructors were equally as astounding in their knowledge and accommodation of someone who was trying to speak Spanish for the first time ever and wanted to practice as much as possible. And what can I say about our hostess? Jenn was incredible! She cooks us breakfasts that were equal parts familiar and inspired by our surroundings (which, by the way, are the most adorable, comfortable, clean, and friendly in this side of the Cerritos surf break), helping us practice our Spanish long after Guillermo had left us for the day. She introduced us to all the staff and neighbors at the villa, drove us to secluded beaches, and took us to Baja beach reggae parties. I can not recommend this experience highly enough for people of all ages and abilities; there is something for everyone and a hostess who will make you long to return to La Playa."

    "Baja Beach Retreats was a perfect holiday. The yoga was amazing, with its beautiful beach location. Practicing yoga in the sunset and watching whales in the water during sun salutations were unforgettable. Jenn was super organized and flexible and catered to our group’s needs. She picked us up at the airport and gave us a great tour as we drove to Cerritos. The Spanish school was well-taught and organized. The location was beautiful; I could walk to the beach, learn to surf, enjoy reading on the roof-top, or go for a swim in the swimming pool. The food was amazing, with full breakfast and even a private chef one evening who cooked us an amazing feast of fish tacos. The excursions to the weekend market, local towns, and amazing farm restaurant were unforgettable. "

    "I took Baja Beach Retreat with some friends in March 2015 and had a wonderful experience for my first trip to Baja. Jenn Swift went above and beyond to create the perfect trip for us. She worked with local businesses to arrange surf lessons, yoga, and Spanish classes. She hosted breakfast at her “casita” each morning, with a variety of fresh fruits, eggs, yogurt, and other foods we requested. After breakfast, we would walk or ride to the beach to surf or to a nearby yoga studio with an amazing ocean view. Jenn is a kind, fun loving Canadian, who showed us why she fell in love with Baja a few years back."

    "Baja Beach Retreats is a welcome oasis from my hectic work and life schedule. The retreat’s idyllic location on Cerritos Beach combined with Jenn’s hospitable, warm, and welcoming spirit, had me feeling rejuvenated in no time. I’ve been learning to surf for three years, and the surf instruction on Cerritos Beach enabled me to have by far the best surf day of my life. Your days will fly by as you work with a top-notch instructor to improve your Spanish. The yoga facility has fantastic ocean views, allowing you to restore inner balance during this fun and friendly retreat experience. I will be returning!"
